No Testimony Under Oath from the Values Party

White House Won’t Allow Rove, Miers To Testify
MSNBC’s Mike Viquiera: “Fred Fielding, he’s the White House counsel, he was just here meeting with the House Judiciary Committee. He made the following to the Congress, both House and Senate. He said Rove and Harriet Miers would be offered to the committees for their testimony in the Alberto Gonzales prosecutors scandal. However, it would be unsworn testimony, not under oath, behind closed doors, and no transcript would be permitted." [emphasis added]
Why not let them testify under oath? If they're telling the truth - which they should be since lying is not acceptable to people of values, right? - then they should have nothing to worry about.

The Bush administration is still stinging from Scooter's perjury conviction, if their people are compelled to tell the truth, Bush is in deep doo-doo.
And really, this should be a wake up to those thirty percenters that Bush is up to no good and wants to hide it from the American people. Let the impeachment begin.

I don't know why Bush is backing Congress into a corner with this challenge. He's refusing to let Rove and Miers testify under oath? Congress has got to react strongly to this, or they might as well just go home.

Lew, I'd like to think those 30 percenters would see the light too, but I'm convinced they won't because they have the same lack of moral integrity that he does.

Abi, Bush is backing himself into a corner because he knows the truth is going to damage him and his administration. Lying just may be Bush's legacy.
